Safe Isolation Courses

Our safe isolation course covers the safe systems of work and procedures for identifying, isolating, proving dead and locking-off electrical circuits for maintenance or repair. The Electricity at Work Regulations requires the isolation of electrical equipment before installation or maintenance is carried out.

Who should attend?

The course mainly aimed at non-electrical trades to provide them with the necessary skills to be competent in safe isolation procedures. Typical examples where safe isolation is required to work with electrical installations safely include: maintenance staff replacing a broken socket, an engineer carrying out maintenance on an air conditioning unit, an alarm installer making a connection to a fused spur, or a PAT technician carrying out the inspection and testing on fixed electrical equipment.

Students will receive a certificate of competence following a practical assessment where they will be required to demonstrate that they can safely and effectively isolate and reconnect an electrical circuit.

Safe Isolation - Open Course

We regularly run safe isolation courses at a number our venues. This is a half day course, 9:30am - 2pm.

Safe Isolation Course - On Site Training

We can also organise an on-site course. As well as being convenient, training in-house often works out the best value option if you have a number of people to train. We bring everything needed to run the course including training rigs and a variety of test equipment and locking off devices. On-site training also allows us to tailor the course content to meet your own particular requirements.
